The Art of Swerving 

These Animals Know What’s Up


Dragonflies

We’ve all seen the memes, but I still had to include these sassy lassies on my list. After mating, female dragonflies will crash to the ground and fake their deaths to avoid other creepy males. I can relate. 


Praying Mantis

The stakes are high for these guys. Not all females eat the head of their mates, but it does happen 13-28% of the time. Why? If the female believes his nutritional value is greater than his life, it’s off with his head.

Black Widow
Like the Praying Mantis, black widow females are notorious for killing their wannabe mates if she’s not feeling it. Think that would make other males hesitant about trying their luck? Wrong. The smell of a dead competitor actually acts as a motivator for other dudes. Logic.

TBH, I’m not sure where this post come from, but, hey, the more you know.

XOXO,
